Description

'Frosh knows his material extremely well; he raises interesting questions and offers some suggestive insights...His interweaving of social theory with psychodynamic explanation is sophisticated and compelling...The book is valuable for its thoughtful and informed insights on contemporary psychoanalytic theories of the self and its pathologies' Contemporary Psychology Identity Crisis examines the psychological responses of people to the excitements and terrors that characterise the modern world. Beginning with a description of modernist and post-modernist accounts of contemporary life, it then moves into detailed discussions of narcissism and psychosis - two states of mind that seem to characterise the 'crises of self' to which the modern world gives rise. Identity Crisis will be of interest to students in a wide range of disciplines including psychology, sociology, psychoanalysis, politics and cultural studies.
